"Fare Ylang Ylang was an ideal spot to spend our family vacation. It is located on the best section of Punaauia's white sand beach. We enjoyed the super quick walk (1 minute) down to the beach every morning and sunset. The lagoon out front was perfect for my 21 month old son and young niece who is learning how to swim. The main fare and bungalow were a highlight--very neat architecture throughout.
Our family enjoyed having morning coffee and eating our meals out on the deck...the gardens are beautiful and we loved the sweet scent of the Ylang Ylang blooms.
The amenities (cookware, towels, sheets) were suitable for our stay. I was impressed with the little special touches such as coffee, fruit and jam.
What made our stay extra special was our hostess Tea. She was very helpful (even pre-arrival) and generous. She was available if we had any questions and ensured we were comfortable everyday. If we did have a concern with the house (propane for shower, etc.), she addressed it quickly and efficiently. Mahalo nui loa Tea.
We all hope to return to this special piece of Tahitian paradise. 'A hui hou (until we meet again)."

"We have just spent a most relaxing and special holiday on Moorea as guests at the pension of Marie-Lou. From the first day we were welcomed as friends to her family of husband Gilles and friendly dogs Rex and Queenie. At the house we enjoyed comfortable accommodation with everything we needed. We even found treats in the fridge on our arrival! The position of the house allows ample space from the garden or deck to admire the mesmerising lagoon and the small pier is an excellent bonus for kayaking. Having grown up nearby, Marie-Lou was a wonderful source of helpful information from historical events to present day tourist possibilities. She was very generous with her time, taking us shopping and showing us local highlights. We so enjoyed the time spent with Marie and Gilles who are relaxed and entertaining hosts. Thank you for sharing your corner of paradise with us. We look forward to returning to your stunningly beautiful island. Caro & John"

"Perfectly situated, comfortable home right in the center of Paradise. This house is well-named - the setting is so tranquil and beautiful. We had an amazing vacation! We paddled along the canal to the lagoon daily. So grateful for the easy access and the trusty kayak! Just a short paddle away from outstanding coral reefs, sandy beaches, colorful fishes, stingrays, eagle rays, black tip reef sharks . . . Also close by are the Intercontinental and Les Tipaniers. They offer additional amenities should you choose to partake. I really enjoyed kayaking between the bungalows at the Intercontinental. The water was so clear and calm. A great place for swimming and snorkeling if the water is choppy out in the more open areas. Across the lagoon are a few motus (islets) that are fun to visit and offer excellent snorkeling. The Coco Beach restaurant on Motu Tiaharu offers fresh seafood dishes with traditional Tahitian sides. Within close walking distance is a well-stocked market so we were able to cook most days. They offer fresh seafood on Tuesdays and Fridays; fresh baked goods (including baguette) daily. Another shopping area is a few kilometers away. We were able to get everything we needed. We did not have a car, just rented a scooter one day, and did just fine. You can also rent bicycles nearby. I could go on and on but don't think I will ever do Moorea and the House of Peace justice. This truly is paradise. Enjoy!"

"Villas Bougainville was just the perfect place for our family vacation on Huahine.
The dock (right across the street) was a neat place to hangout during sunset and watch the setting sun hit the surrounding mountains and coconut trees to create this vibrant orange colors.
Although VB (Maroe Bay) is about a ten minute drive from Fare (main town), the cars made transportation easy...boats were another convenient way to explore the laid-back island.
Most of all, thank you to Raphael who made our stay so enjoyable. The airport greeting (and departure) were such extra special touches of his warm hospitality. The warm welcoming (he gives lots of useful island info) made us feel at home and he ensured we were taken cared of during our stay. If we had a concern with the house (ie. kitchen stove propane ran out) he addressed it immediately. What a bonus to have him around...mahalo!
We'll always remember our time there and hope to be back in the future.
'A hui hou (until we meet again)."
